At the LinuxUser & Developer Expo this week in London, linuxaudio.org
had a small presence alongside the Rosegarden stand. As well as Chris
Cannam and Richard Bown from the Rosegarden team, Tim Hall (who is a
musician and Demudi user) came to help out.
We made new contacts with OSDL, Sun, SUSE and the BBC R&D department,
with the latter having a stand of their own this year. (Many of the
BBC techies are pro-Linux, and they are trying to work more closely
with the community).

i was wondering if anybody here knows about possibilities to get hosted
in Karlsruhe for the linux-audio-dev meeting (or even maybe get the trip
payed!) - i'd like to come and stay a few days, show dyne:bolic and get
in touch with you guys, alltough i'm unable to rely on my own funds for
such nice meetings.
thanks anyway, in case i'd rather ask you to bring a copy of dyne:bolic
with you for anybody who is interested, there might be some.

Glad to hear it!
I've now downloaded the examples from

It might be better if you sent a formal project launch announcement
It's a strictly moderated list, so the mail will take a little while
to go out - but this is definitely a good place to start.

We have a number of members who are actively involved in DSP work, so
I'm sure they would be very interested to check out the information
on your site (if they haven't already).
On your site, I notice that you're from Karlsruhe - a number of us are
heading there for the International Linux Audio Conference at the end
of this month. Are you planning to be there?

That's fair enough. In fact quite a few of our contacts are being made
at an informal level, without interested parties necessarily becoming
members of the consortium.

I'd say this is definitely of interest to our members, especially
since you are proposing to release your code under the GPL. I'd be
interested to know the advantages that your project will offer over
the existing time stretching software that I've used, such as the
tempo change effect within Audacity.
(I'll confess that although I've used this kind of software, I'm
unclear about the benefits of the various designs!)
Have you posted an announcement on the linux-audio-announce or
linux-audio-developer mailing lists?
Thanks for getting in touch!
I've had another trade show enquiry - is anyone on this list attending
the Nab Show in Las Vegas, 19-22 April? (It's the National
Association of Broadcasters event).
It would be good if we could participate in this kind of event,
perhaps as the guest of a sponsor to keep it affordable.
